Hey y’all! I’m not Southern, but I still like to say that! 🙂 Especially because…It’s FALL, y’all! 🙂

I’ve been getting my craft on up in here in a big, big way. I’m decorating my house with lots of cool DIY’s, and I’m starting to make a lot of handmade Christmas presents in preparation for the holidays.

Well, I’m sort of in love with my latest DIY, and I wanted to share it with you, so you can make it!

Mason Jar Light Fixture Tutorial – Food Wine & Poopy Diapers

If you’ve ever taken a gander at my Pinterest or Instagram pages, you’ve gotten a good glimpse of the fact that I’m into very rustic distressed and shabby chic decor. And while I love my house, when we first moved in, a lot of the design & fixtures were too modern and contemporary for my liking.

Case in point, the pendant lights above our kitchen island. There was nothing wrong with them, but I just felt like they needed a more rustic touch. Knowing me, you know I’m frugal, and I just can’t bring myself to spend a lot of money on my home decor items. I love thrifting, garage sales, estate sales, auctions and craigslist! Sometimes I’m even able to find things in my own home to use as home decor. And that’s exactly what I did with my pendant light fixture makeover.

12 DIY Fall Front Porch Ideas

Fall is here, and there’s nothing I love more than decorating when the season hits! For me, this is the OFFICIAL START of the holiday season. From September first all the way through New Years, I’m ALL ABOUT the home decor.
Things are looking pretty cute around my neighborhood, and I’d like to share some great front porch ideas from myself, my friends, and neighbors!

12 Fall Front Porch DIY Ideas

1. Country Front Porch.
My front porch this year is a little slice of the farm right here in town. I’ve placed an assortment of heirloom pumpkins that I got at a farmer’s market road side stand on the steps. I wrapped our front pillar in corn stalks from Flowerama for $9.99.

2. My Fall Front Porch, full view.
Here’s the full view of my Fall front porch. I found really well-priced and beautiful mums at Earl May Garden Center, and I placed them in some old metal buckets I found out on Grandma & Grandpa’s farm. The hay bails are from Flowerama, $9.99.

3. Chalk It Up To Fall.
I love keeping this giant chalk board on the front porch and decorating it for whatever holidays, events, and parties we’ve got going on. This one came from Gordman’s last year, for CHEAP (I stacked coupons plus used my Gordman’s Rewards)!

It’s Fall Ya’ll…my front porch chalk board says so!

4. The Cutest Pumpkin in the Patch.
Adam is sitting on the front porch all ready for preschool picture day. See the big brick that says, “Welcome”? It was a cute Goodwill find from my mom. It weighs about 500 pounds, by the way.

5. Mums in a Bucket.
More pretty mums from Earl May. I love this big old, rustic galvanized metal bucket that I found in my in-law’s barn. I’ve had a few really successful pickin’ expeditions in that barn! Lots of old rusty treasures. The hay bail is from Earl May.

A bail of hay is the perfect resting spot for a bucket of mums.

6. Pumpkins-O-Plenty.
I’m just a little obsessed with mossy, gnarly, vintage-looking heirloom pumpkins. This is the first year that I’ve splurged on buying these rather than the classic round style pumpkins, and I’m loving them! The only drawback I’m seeing is that they’re very dense and heavy…I don’t think they’re good for carving. So stick with the classics if you plan to carve them.

I just love the rustic charm of heirloom pumpkins!

Not your average pumpkin…White heirloom pumpkins straight from the farm.

7. Goodwill’s Got It.
If you’re looking for a little accent for your front porch…whether it’s a wreath, a Fall flower pot, or this fun pillow… take a stroll through your local Goodwill store and you’ll find the perfect finishing touches. I wasn’t looking for anything at all and I wasn’t even in the Halloween section when this pillow found me. But, I just had to take it home to rest on the wicker chair out front. I like buying pillows for outdoor use at Goodwill, where they’re $1.88, so they can be exposed to the elements and I don’t worry if I have to throw them away at the end of the season.

Hit up Goodwill for some frugal Halloween finds!

8. DIY Country Window.
The blank wall on the front porch needed a little something…and a little something CHEAP is even better. This was a salvaged window from an old barn. The glass was cracked, so I removed all the remaining glass with a hammer and replaced it with chicken wire that I bought at Theisen’s Farm Store. One small, inexpensive roll of chicken wire has lasted me through half a dozen DIY projects. I just love chicken wire! I fastened it with my heavy duty electric stapler. Then I just used twine to fasten this cute little metal pumpkin picture to it that I got at Goodwill for $.88. Cute right? And so simple.

9. Sweet & Simple Front Porch.
My neighbors have the right idea with their clean and classy Fall front porch. A nice display of various sizes and colors of pumpkins and mums create a welcoming entrance.

10. Country in the City.
My friend Ange has an eye for design. Her farmtique chic front porch blends rustic wood accents with vintage metal buckets, Fall mums, and cornstalks. I can’t get enough of her country-inspired decor! So pretty.

A little bit of country in the city… Love my neighbor, Ange’s, rustic Fall front porch!

11. Pumpkins & Clean Lines.
My friend Lily’s front porch is simple and elegant, with a modern feel. Her straight lines, modern prints, and black accents create a trendy Fall look.

12. Modern Mums.
Lily adds Fall mums to a large, modern black vase for a beautiful seasonal accent. I love how she’s blended varying heights of green and Fall foliage together for an eclectic look.

I hope these ideas have inspired you to spruce up your front porch! Happy Fall!!

DIY Holiday Project: Deployment Tree

Put up a Deployment Tree for family members who are serving through the holiday season!

This really great (and very sweet) DIY Crafting idea comes from Sarah W. in VA!

Sarah sent in some fantastic DIY ideas as part of our Epson LabelWorks Contest!

Sarah is part of a big military family, and they had a very special tradition while Dad was serving his country and unable to be with them through the holidays!

Sarah said, “We put up a red, white, and blue “patriotic” tree at Christmas time… And leave it up until dad gets home.”
